This outfit incorporates some of my most beloved pieces in my wardrobe. While I generally wear dresses with a fitted waist, I have been recently drawn towards shift dresses from the 1960s. This frock is particularly special since it reminds me of a relic from the atomic era with a bit of galactic inspiration. The bag, with its subtle Southwestern detailing and braided straps, incorporates a muted color palette that is quite fitting for a rather cold San Francisco Spring. And while I always have had a penchant for costume jewelry, this gold art-deco inspired collar is my favorite piece that I own. I recently found it for $3.00 in a tiny thrift store in Las Vegas. It was tucked behind other oddities deep within a jewelry case, and I giddily purchased the necklace along with a turquoise sterling silver bracelet and a Donovan record. For other thrifting connoisseurs, Las Vegas has some of the best thrifting in the West. I can't wait to return for more goodies in late summer.
